Augustine on the Goodness of All Things

Augustine argues that everything that exists is good.  His argument is criticized, showing how arguments of the same form could show that completely blackened pans cannot exist and that God is an impossible object.   So, the paper shows how to paradoy an argument by giving parallel reasoning that yields absurd conclusions.

The Bible and Music
Unrestricted Use

Rating
0.0 stars

The Bible and Music by Dr. James F. McGrath provides an introduction and overview of the various ways that music and the Bible have been and continue to be connected. Part 1 focuses on history, presenting what we know about how music in the Ancient Near East sounded, how markings in the Masoretic Text of the Hebrew Bible have been interpreted as musical symbols, how chanting of biblical texts has featured liturgically in synagogues and churches, the impact of the Protestant Reformation, and musical developments in North America as enslaved Africans encountered biblical texts and stories. Part 2 focuses on specific texts in Jewish and Christian scripture and looks at how they have been interpreted through the process of setting them to music, including the soundtracks of cinematic depictions of biblical narrative and allusions to the Bible in popular music. Part 3 focuses on composers from the Middle Ages all the way down to the present day. Throughout the book, musical examples are not merely mentioned but embedded so that reading and listening may be seamlessly combined. The book does not presume prior knowledge of either music or the Bible, and additional links within the text provide definitions and further explanations for those who need or desire them.

Une anthologie de L’Entraide missionnaire

Short Description:
CETTE ANTHOLOGIE PRESENTE 60 TEXTES CLASSES CHRONOLOGIQUEMENT REFLETANT DES PREOCCUPATIONS SOCIALES, POLITIQUES ET SPIRITUELLES EN EVOLUTION. CES TEXTES SONT MAJORITAIREMENT DES CONFERENCES QUI ONT ETE PRONONCEES LORS DU CONGRES ANNUEL DE L’ENTRAIDE MISSIONNAIRE JUSQU'EN 2015, OFFRANT UN ECHANTILLON DES TRESORS QUI SE TROUVENT DANS SES ARCHIVES.

Long Description:
Incorporé en 1958, L’Entraide missionnaire a réalisé un parcours remarquable au service de la solidarité internationale grâce à l’engagement soutenu de ses membres, des personnes responsables de la permanence et un grand nombre de collaboratrices et collaborateurs à travers le monde. En 2015, suite à une lecture collective des signes des temps, les membres de L’Entraide missionnaire ont pris la décision d’entamer un processus de transmission d’héritage avant de fermer l’organisme au printemps 2018.

En offrant un échantillon, certes très limité, des trésors qui se trouvent dans les archives de L’Entraide missionnaire, cette anthologie présente 60 textes classés chronologiquement reflétant des préoccupations sociales, politiques et spirituelles en évolution. L’essentiel de ces textes sont des conférences qui ont été prononcées lors du Congrès annuel de l’Entraide missionnaire, véritable lieu de rassemblement, d’échanges, de réflexions et de critiques sociales.

À la lumière de l’introduction et à travers les lectures sélectionnées, on découvre, même dans les textes écrits sur du vieux papier, des archives qui sont toujours en conversation avec le présent, attentives aux signes des temps. Nous y découvrons des brèches de résistance et d’affirmation de vie et d’humanité solidaire contre les obstacles qui nous confrontent. Nous y trouvons une continuité jusqu’au dernier geste de transmission du legs : un engagement profond et réfléchi qui exige de l’audace, de l’indignation face à l’injustice et de l’espérance pour la transformation du monde.

The Christian Roots of Europe
Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-NC-ND
Rating
0.0 stars

For the most part recorded on site in places such as Subiaco, Montecassino, Assis, San Casciano, Florence and Rome in June of 2013, the documentary we present here was produced and then broadcasted by the State Television of Portugal on December 24, 2013 (RTP2) and January 2, 2014 (RTP1). The Program was produced for RTP1 by the Journalist Fátima Campos Ferreira and the Reporter of Image Carlos Oliveira under the scientific advice of João J. Vila-Chã, professor for Philosophy at the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome. The documentary was particularly enriched by the contribution of Professor Joseph Weiler, President of the European University Institute in Florence, and was edited by Alexandre Leandro, chief-editor at the RTP. Originally titled (in Portuguese) «O Triunfo do Espírito», the documentary was conceived as (a rather unusual form of) narrative about (the Idea of) Europe and out of the recognition that for the present as for the future of the world a confront remains unavoidable with the cultural and the religious dimension of the Idea of Europe as we know it through the media of our cultural (and philosophical) history. We are grateful to all the Institutions that in places such as Subiaco, Montecassino, Assis, Florence, San Casciano and Rome allowed the team sent by the RTP to Italy to realize the work as intended and so contributed in a decisive way to this particular (and somehow peculiar) narrative about the Idea of Europe.
